At Venopi, one of our missions is to help turning single purpose places into multi-functional spaces. We believe that buildings are made to be occupied, not empty and that we can bring people together in existing places in a sustainable way.

We love Haas & Popi because of their unique, sustainable, & affordable location; We also adore how they utilize LOLAland and create a new purpose for it and transform it into a fun new space for the local community. Haas & Popi is not just a restaurant; it’s a stage for music, performance, party, and debate with bar and terrace facilities attached to it.

For today’s blog post, we are excited to welcome Haas & Popi in Amsterdam on Venopi!

Haas & Popi at LOLAland

Haas & Popi is part of LOLAland. LOLA creates a new purpose for empty buildings, and comes up with fun new spaces for the local community. That is how Haas & Popi came to live in this beautiful blue building.

What are the facts about Haas&Popi that most people don’t know about?
Haas & Popi is a pop-up location that is located at the beach of IJburg. We fell in love with the beach, water and nature. For two more summers we can explore this beautiful space, organise parties and enjoy life at the beach.

What do you think is one of the most exciting features of your venue that sets it apart from others?
We are literally located ON the beach. You can walk a couple of meters and jump in the water. This combined with locally harvested products and a great natural wine list, makes it a special spot 🌈

The Terrace (tent)

Can you tell us a stand-out experience you have related to Haas & Popi?
We had a super exciting circus event. Everyone was dressed up as clowns and acrobats. The beautiful decorations made it a memorable party.

Also we have had some really cool collaborations with festivals and brands. We sometimes heat up the BBQ for groups bigger than 300 people and DJ’s play tunes till the early morning. It’s always great fun.
